Every kinder teacher knows shared reading plays a huge role in your students' success as independent readers! But finding shared reading poems with visuals and high frequency words at your students' level can be a never-ending challenge. In this Complete Poetry Notebook Printable Pack you have everything you need to create individual poetry notebooks for each student in your class to read at school and at home.
You will find 12 original four line poems in this pack. These poems allow students to independently practice their pre-reading skills, concepts about print and fluency. Students will also learn to recognize high frequency words (I, am, a, is, the, he, she, we, to, like, and, in, it, see, me, my, on, not, with, play) through a mix of A, B and C level patterns. Each poem is full of visuals to help students remember and read trickier words on their own. These poems are great for native speakers and English Language Learners alike. Included are fall and winter poems; Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas poems - and also many poems that can work for any time of year!
The poems come already formatted two per page on landscape 8.5x11 paper, so all you have to do is print and cut down the middle for students to easily glue the poem into any marble or spiral notebook. I have also included a welcome letter (in both English and Spanish!) to glue in at the front to explain to parents the purpose of the poetry notebook as a learning tool and the skills they can work on at home.
